Puttin’ In Your Writing Miles: Create, Write, Refine, Repeat with Tom King

Through several applied writing activities and challenges, you will develop literary insights and skills you may not have considered. Plus you will share in new tales, songs, poems…much quirky fun. Geared toward people who are just starting to scratch their writing itch and those whose creativity could use a jumpstart, you’re certain to leave with lots of pages of first draft writing.

Getting Past the “So What?” with Christina Clancy

What is the deeper meaning or broader theme of our work? In this collaborative workshop, we’ll engage in exercises to generate new work and discuss your story ideas and/or work-in-progress. We’ll also develop strategies that can help push your writing further — or, rather, closer to your readers.

*Studio workshops held on Saturday mornings from 9:30 – noon in our studio at 11709 W. Cleveland Ave, West Allis (in the education wing of Holy Trinity Church)
